congress signed into law. the last passed 383 bills, before that, 460 bills. the last time the nbc news wall street journal poll measured, it was barely in double digits at 12% for the approval rating. it's not hard to figure out way. they started by narrowly ajoiding a government shutdown. that was the first fight. it nearly drove the u.s. government into default. and culminated with the fiscal cliff face-off here at the end. congress made two big promises. at least the house republicans did. repealing health care and shrinking spending. you could argue, they're 0 for 2. but they deserve points on the spending front. every spending bill is a real fight. and that is progress as far as conservatives are concerned. still, the first act ended late wednesday when the president directed from hawaii that the fiscal cliff bill be signed by autopen and declared victory in a campaign style video. >> just recently, republicans in congress said they never agreed to raise tax rates on the wealthiest americans. we have now raised those rates permanently. >> and that's what is still remarkable about

challenge to the health care law is of course a tea party favorite and a favorite of social conservatives, but money and the backing of the clintons didn't do the trick for mccullough last time around. key question this time, which flawed candidate wins this race or supposedly flawed candidate? mccullough is hoping to break this curse. since 1976, the party that wins the presidency loses the state's gubernatorial election the next year. it's never wavered. 20 2001, after bush was elected, mark warner, he defeated a republican. 52% of the vote. in 2005, after bush's election, tim kaine beat jerry kilgore by six points. bob mcdonnell won in obama's first year in office. it would turn out to be 40%. the electorate likely to be a little whiter, older, more conservative than it was in virginia. will it be conservative enough to elect ken kutch anele. speaking of the campaign, if you're thinking of working on hillary's presidential campaign, you're supposed to send your resumf to terry mccullough. in new jersey, where the governor's race is all about one man, chris christie and 2016. he hopes t

into law in this congress, the lowest number that we've seen. and you know, but the thing that you have to understand, i think there's a lot of republicans who don't necessarily think that that's a bad thing. they think shrinking the government, making the government do less are actually good things. >> right, i don't think there's any question about that. we know there's an element of the republican party, ron paul, rand paul being the most visible, who think the less government does, the better. now, in that vain, i've been struck. david wasserman at the "cook political report" crunched the numbers on this, that there are 234 house republicans. 15 of them, 15 represent districts that president obama carried in 2012. given that, and we were talking with kelly about the fact that this has to come through the house at some point, that republicans still control. is there any reason for, politically speaking -- >> absolutely, right. >> -- not good of the country speaking, but politically speaking, is there any reason for these guys to make a deal given that for 215 of them, the consti

11:59 a.m. on thursday. that's when this congress by law has to adjourn. so between now and then we're going to get a back and forth, sequester delay and mike just spoke about. i want to say one thing which i think we're missing over here, guys. the fact to agree here in washington, d.c. about these numbers at $400,000 for individuals and $450,000 for couples, think about how much this is argued over over 10 years in washington. these tax levels. not just sunsetted later on, it's for couples and individuals permanently and a huge deal and what mitch mcconnell was trying to say, we have come to this agreement. voting to raise taxes. that's huge for republicans. don't scuttle it because of some hiccup over the sequester. now a lot of democrats who don't like this, they want the president to fight. remains to be seen is that can it pass the house gop? house republicans said any type of deal that doesn't cut spending will not get our vote even if it comes out of the senate. still a long way to go on any final compromise. >> kristen, what are you hearing out of the white house right n
